Summary

It’s been ten years since a mysterious, horrific incident in the South China Sea annihilated a US Navy destroyer and its Navy SEAL team. Only one man survived. Now, the US Navy is determined to put a stop to the new, frightening incidents taking place with alarming frequency.

Enter SEAL Team 13, an elite group of soldiers led by sole survivor Harold “Hawk” Masters. Everyone on the team has survived contact with supernatural forces from “the other side.” Will their camaraderie and duty to country be enough to defeat the malevolent undead forces threatening the country?

From world-building author Evan Currie, SEAL Team 13 is a dark, riveting, and action-packed tale of military intrigue and supernatural horror.

A great story

What made the experience of listening to SEAL Team 13 the most enjoyable?

Great story, excellent narration.

What did you like best about this story?

It's a good story and a nice twist on the vampire story. There is plenty of scope in Evan's world for more and I will be interested to see what he comes up with next.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The thermite grenade in the coffin. Funny!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Made me laugh more than cry. A great story but the characters don't quite get to the point of 'friends', so that connection isn't there...yet!

Any additional comments?

A great read, well narrated. You won't be disappointed.

Great but would like more

So one of Evans early works so you can see lots of ideas that matured in his later works, but I would still like to see more of seal team 13

This Quickly Turned into My Favorite Book in Genre

What made the experience of listening to SEAL Team 13 the most enjoyable?

I LOVED SEAL Team 13 by Evan Currie. This led me to read all four of his Sci-Fi series. It also brought me to SEAL Team 666 & its sequel, Age of Blood; but I’m Jonesin' for the next SEAL Team 13 Novel! None of the rest does it for me like this Hit! Chock full of our .50 Caliber, Beowulf M4 wielding, ST 13 Favorites, taking the heads off of every Supernatural BG in sight per single trigger pull! This would make many of my friends and me big time buyers of SEAL Team 13 - Part 2! I'm already on my 3rd listen through! Can anyone tell me if a sequel is in the works?

Being Dyslexic as a Philosophy & Pre-Med Major at U.C. Berkeley - Cal. And an MBA from Haas there as well, I had to push through 10-15 heavy books a week for 7 years. In order for me to ingest all that info properly enough to maintain a 3.72 GPA there all the way through Graduate School, I had to read each paragraph 3 times before moving on to the next. Audible lets me close my eyes and just listen to all of my favorite, and new favorite, books. It is, for me, like sitting 'round the Campfire, with the sky full of stars, while listening to my dearly departed Grandpa tell me each story. It is amazing! I did not pick up one solitary book to read since I Graduated in 1999, and now that I discovered Audiobooks in February of this year, I have enjoyed well over 50 Novels, with a huge amount to go. Thank You!

Told ya he was getting better! ;)

I said early on that Evan Currie was going to get better with each book, and he hasn't disappointed me yet!

Aside from the books he's turning out at a pretty steady pace, I really like a lot of things about the Author "personally" (I don't know him personally, I just know what I've SEEN that he's DONE)... He doesn't just 'write about' "Perseverance" and "Courage" and the usual things; He displays those qualities himself! The First book I read by Currie was "Into The Black", which he'd originally Self-Published. As I said while reviewing that book, "Some people have a story inside them that they believe will connect with readers, if only they can get that story in front of the intended audience. For a new author, getting a book published the traditional way is very often a lesson in 'Why you can't', punctuated by stumbling blocks that seem almost designed to say 'give it up, you don't believe in it enough'". It takes a LOT of Perseverance, Courage, and belief in YOURSELF and your own abilities, to 'push on through' when 'the experts' are telling you, "you can't". I LOVE seeing people turn 'You Can't' into 'THEY DID!' That's the same mix of qualities that you HAVE to have to go far in the Military, "Push On Through!", which is one of the things that shines through in Currie's Military Sci-Fi Books!

At first, "Seal Team 13" felt like a sudden sharp left turn away from the other books I've listened to by Currie, but in a great way! Looking back, it's not really such a hard sharp turn, Currie seems to love writing Military Sci-Fi (Which I just happen to love reading, so it works out well ;) but Currie's past works had a "Space Based Theme" to them early on... This book doesn't go "Into Space", instead it goes "Across the Veil", which was the good twist that made me feel like he'd suddenly made a turn from his earlier works...

Currie also has this knack of introducing "New Tech" in such a way that you don't realize it's "New Tech" and that it doesn't really exist, until later on after you kinda reflect on the book... Then I kinda slapped myself on the forehead, said "Duh", and thought, "I have GOT to get away from my Work-Bench more often" ... As a side note, If I DID 'get away from my work-bench more often', that would be about the time my wife would gleefully whip out her video of me 'Riding Fence' on one of our horses, with a CAD program open on my Palm-Top Computer, designing a new circuit that suddenly hit me... so let's just not go there ;)

Currie kinda "Slips the new stuff in on you" WITHOUT screaming "This is NEW STUFF that *I* thought up" the way many authors do... Nope, he just slips something in, and you don't even realize it doesn't exist... It may be the cool way he has of not trying to "Teach you how to build one yourself", instead he just writes about it like, "Yawn... this is common as dirt, EVERYBODY has one" as the character whips it out and uses it... 5 minutes LATER, your brain catches up and you think, "A WHAT? Wait a Minute...."

I also liked the Narration by Todd Haberkorn a LOT more! The "Odyssey One" Series, was a bit hard to listen to at first, and I kept thinking "But the writing seems to be good, maybe it's the Narration that's pulling the experience down for me".. Then in the last book of that series, the Narration switched to David deVries, and the book came alive! Usually swapping Narrators in the middle of a series is a recipe for disaster from fans, but I noticed his book ratings suddenly seemed to go WAY up, and *I* thought it was a great choice (not that what *I* think means much, until it's time to pay the bills ;)! So I think Mr. Haberkorn is going to the same amazing job of Narration, and "bringing the Characters to life", as deVries brought to the Odyssey One Series! I mean, there HAS to be another book here! Currie closed the book down, but he left the story line wide open for MORE!

...And OF COURSE, "I want MORE"!

Nightmares are real.

What did you love best about SEAL Team 13?

--The characters and dialogue.

Any additional comments?

This is not your typical SEAL story. There is no training to prepare for this kind of mission. All those stories about the evil things that they go bump in the night---they are true. The gov doesn't want to believe it but with the incidences becoming more frequent they had to do something. This is where TEAM 13 cbomes in. If you like horror, action this one will sure do it for you.

wasn't sure at first but loved it

I I hadn't read anything by this author until this book. I really did enjoy the storyline after the first couple of chapters and I caught on to what was going on in the world. I look forward to reading the next books in the series

"Horror, A Start of a Series"

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I finished as I purchased on sale! I did not see the single word HORROR when I did a quick read of the story summery. This is right out of a 70's TV script! If romance is for chicks, then this was definitely for those who like zombies books. Frankly, it was not bad as a Karen Slaughter terror book, which I too purchased by mistake. This was not gory which is why I could finish. It was inventive.

If you’ve listened to books by Evan Currie before, how does this one compare?

This was a mistake buy so absolutely not again for me. However, this was a good start to a series if author can continue his inventiveness.

What about Todd Haberkorn’s performance did you like?

Todd is the reason I purchased this book. He is such a talented reader, see his work A.K.A MacLoud Andrews. I have made other book mistakes as I buy for the reader and not just for an author. Boy, I have learned NOT to buy a book from my mobile screen. The summery seemed Ok, but of course I missed a key word "horror" on the small screen.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from SEAL Team 13?

Playing back seat editor is rude. These authors work their hearts' out. This author could write movie scripts of this nature and do very well. His vocabulary for the Seal's seem spot on. I loved it when the 2 Seals lift the captain up under the arm pits to run.

Any additional comments?

I don't know if there is a #2 book, but I could see the team evolving and adding members very easily. Just keep the gore down to this level and you have a winner.
